    Is 8912 a good score for a 7900GT?

    I'm @ 532/1600Mhz atm and I ran the benchmark with High Quality settings on nVidia control panel.

    (If that is a low score another thing is I *think* AA and AF were forced on in the control panel, will have to test this later)

    Was just hoping someone could give me a insight on the scores I should be reaching :)

    7900GTs are meant to be about the same as X1800XTs and I score 9500 at stock with my X1800... Seems nearly there, maybe a bit more tweaking and you should be spot on:)

    Welcome to the forums:)

    I would say thats a bit low... I was getting around 7100 with my old X850XT and I thought 7800s were meant to be a fair bit faster. You may be a bit CPU limited there though so might be worth overclocking your chip a bit:)

    thanks, I dont think the Dell motherboard lets the cpu be overclocked, I had a feeling my CPU would probably be the weak point in my pc, or do you think maybe the PSU could be a problem?

    That must be way too low? I mean, I get better score with my x1800xt at stock speed, without any tweaking with the driver...

    7800GS is about on par with a X850XT.
    Still the score is low but then its a P4.

    For some reason when I set the quality to low it doesn't change anything...
    Back when I was on ATI you could visably see a huge difference, does this not happen on NVidia (NVidia n00b I guess)

    Hi mate and welcome to the Best forum on the interweb.
    I would just like to say i would be slightly concerned about that generic PSU you are running. 250 seems well light and i don't think Dell use the best manufacturers.
    Put a quality PSU on your shopping list. :)

    You can see a preview of the difference on the new nVidia control panel ;)
    Difference is big in IQ but the difference in performance is very low.

    Can't find the preview. But manageed to get it set properly this time.
    7775 points all stock. (see sig for specs)

    Need some serious tweaks still though...

    (or does that sound right for 450:660 on the 7900GT)

    You can find the Preview if you do the following...

    Open the nVidia CP > 3D Settings > To the left of the screen "Adjust image settings with a preview" :)

    Putting my Core/Memory OC back on now @ 532/798, will see the difference in marks.

    Hmmm still can't see it....
    Could it be the drivers I am on? - I'm using 84.21

    Also I'm using the secondary slot on my board (chipset heatisnk in the way at the top) so have the PCIe bandwidth at 8x.
    On my X800XL I had no performance loss doing this, maybe it could be an issue now the rest of my pc is much faster.
